Open-Faced Grilled Cheese on Thick Buttermilk Pancake / Topli sendviči na debeloj palačinki od kiselog mlijeka

The other day while browsing our fridge I concluded that we had a whole bunch of odds and ends which needed to be utilized and eaten as soon as possible. That usually happens when I don’t plan for the meals but instead succumb to cravings for let’s say cheese or buttermilk or cake. However, cake is rarely a leftover in our house so luckily you don’t have to bake one to assemble this sandwich. 🙂

This recipe is fairly liberal and you can substitute buttermilk for yogurt, sour cream or even milk. The toppings are also totally optional and throwing a grilled veggie or two would work out more than fine. As would some crispy bacon.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 sandwiches / 0.90 EUR per sandwich / 1.80 EUR for all)

For the batter:

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

1 cup buttermilk (0.40 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

For sandwich topping:

6 slices of cheese (0.53 EUR)

4 slices of ham (0.53 EUR)

Additional:

4 tsp sunflower oil for cooking (0.05 EUR)

METHOD:

Make the batter by whisking together egg, buttermilk and salt. Add in baking soda and flour and whisk until fully incorporated and no lumps remain. The batter should be quite thick.  Cover with cling foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

When ready to cook, preheat cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add in two tablespoons of sunflower oil and half of the batter. Flatten the batter with a spatula and cook until the top is set, for about five minutes. Flip the pancake over and finish off on the other side, for about two minutes. Keep the pancake warm and repeat the process to use up the remaining batter.

To assemble the sandwiches, place two slices of cheese on each pancake, top with two slices of ham and then cover the ham with remaining slice of cheese. Put sandwiches under a broiler for just a minute or two until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.

Dok sam neki dan kopala po frižideru ustanovila sam da imamo cijelu gomilu nekakvih ostataka koje treba iskoristiti i čim prije pojesti. To mi se obično desi kada ne isplaniram točno unaprijed što ću skuhati, već me ulovi želja za raznoraznim stvarima, kao što su sir, ili kiselo mlijeko, ili torta. Međutim, torta je rijetko kada ostatak u našem kućanstvu, pa ne morati prethodno ispeći jednu da bi ste si složili ovaj sendvič. 🙂

Ovaj recept je otvoren za razne modifikacije pa slobodno možete zamijeniti kiselo mlijeko s jogurtom, kiselim vrhnjem ili mlijekom. Fila za sendvič je također prilagodljiva vašem ukusu, a bez problema možete dodati i neko povrće sa žara. Ili hrskavi špek.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 sendviča / 6,71 kn po sendviču / 13,42 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

¼ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50  kn)

Za sendvič:

6 šnita sira (4,00 kn)

4 šnite šunke (4,00 kn)

Dodatno:

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja za pečenje (0,40 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite smjesu tako da skupa umutite jaje, kiselo mlijeko i sol. Dodajte sodu bikarbonu i brašno i dobro sve promiješajte dok ne dobijete glatko, gusto tijesto bez grudica. Pokrijte zdjelu prijanjajućom folijom i stavite u hladnjak na 30 minuta.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte tavicu od lijevanog željeza na srednjoj vatri. Dodajte dvije žlice suncokretovog ulja i pola smjese. Špatulom poravnajte smjesu i pecite dok se gornja strana ne stisne, oko pet minuta. Okrenite palačinku i zapecite za druge strane, još oko dvije minute. Držite palačinku na toplom i ponovite sa ostatkom smjese.

Složite sendviče tako da na svaku palačinku stavite po dvije šnite sira, pokrijte sa po dvije šnite šunke i za kraj poklopite šunku sa još po šnitom sira. Stavite sendviče na koju minutu odmah ispod grijača na pećnici upaljenog na najjače, tek toliko da se sir rastopi. Poslužite odmah.
